About the project

Burnside Primary School will accommodate up to 475 students from Prep to Year 6. We've finished the first stage of the school, and it opened for the first students in Term 1, 2019.

The school received an additional $5.6 million in the 2018–19 State Budget for the second stage of the project – a performing arts and physical education facility that will be ready in Term 1, 2019.

This school, designed by Architectus and K2LD as part of the Growth Areas Schools Project, was a winner of the 'Minister's Award for Excellence' in the 2019 Victorian School Design AwardsExternal Link .

Burnside Children's and Community Centre is located next to Burnside Primary School, helping local children make a smooth transition from pre-school and reducing the number of drop-offs for some parents with kinder and school-aged children.
